This is my second time visiting the castle Eden inn and the place is very well to do when it comes to food if you like exquisite fine dining then this will appeal. We like a glass of red on a cold night in front of the fire and that's exactly what we did. Nice place

Had a wonderful meal of freshly cooked food. Very pleasant surrounds. Staff very polite and helpful. They are quite young and we didn't want to hear about their weekend escapades, but that should disappear as they become more experienced. Steak Night Thursdays are a must.

Looking at Facebook reviews it's a bit of a mixed selection though to us Castle Eden Inn has always been a cut above the area's Restaurants , Venue & Ambience - though it is an old building there is a modern contemporary style with quality touches such as best linen tablecloths & napkins , well spaced out tables giving a...

My husband and friends enjoyed a three course dinner. The food was delicious. Two of us had lamb rump which was perfect. The presentation was very good as was the service. Compliments to the chef. Will definitely be returning customers .

My wife and I have dined here three times and previous visits have proved pretty mixed experiences with bold aspects and others that lacked a little. We decided to try it again on Monday evening and this visit we had a much better experience all round. Firstly the food was faultless, which asked the question has a new chef taken... More

This is supposed to be a Salmon, Prawn & Dill Risotto, we waited 50 minutes (during off peak hour) to be service a overlooked piece of salmon, chunks of onion bigger than the prawns and fried rice. Utterly appalling!

We booked a table for dinner for four at 7.30pm. The food was very good but the entire experience was let down by poor service. When we sat down the menus were just dumped in a pile on the table instead for being handed to each of the diners. Our orders were taken without too much delay, but the starters... More

Had a lovely meal here early July. Bar was packed, but served quickly and efficiently by the staff. Staffing in the restaurant again was a bit rough round the edges and no excuses really as there were only 3 or 4 tables booked in. However...the food was lovely. Best Ive had in a while. Wasn't too expensive either. Had Shrimp... More

We went out as a family for Sunday Lunch for my birthday. We haven't been for a while but, as usual, it was a real pleasure, a lovely relaxed Sunday. The starters were interesting and varied. We had the soup, the salmon and the black pudding. Main courses had a range of meats and a vegetarian lasagne with some new... More

We had Sunday lunch at the Castle Eden Inn with friends. All four of us had three courses, the variety of choice was good and the staff friendly and attentive. Admittedly we did not book the table until 2pm which agreed is a little late for a lunch serving. However the roast potatoes I was served were obviously 'old' and... More
